What’s the most expensive gift you’ve ever received while dating?

We’ve all gone through the dating thing, right?

And while you’re dating that special someone – whether it be for just a few weeks, a few months, or a year or two – you’ve probably found yourself wanting to buy them a gift of some sort.

Maybe it’s a traditional gift-giving holiday, like Christmas.  Or it’s a birthday.  You’re celebrating an anniversary of the first time you met or some other special moment.  A job promotion, new house, new puppy.

It doesn’t matter what the reason is — the point is, it was time to select a present for your Significant Other.

Which brings up the question:  WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE GIFT YOU’VE EVER GIVEN YOUR DATE , or conversely – WHAT IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED WHILE DATING SOMEONE?

We’re not talking major gifts, like an engagement ring.

We’re talking those extravagently over-the-top, financially irresponsible gifts that just don’t make any sense for a couple that may not necessarily be planning on spending the rest of their lives together.

According to the PLENTY OF FISH dating website, some of the more outrageous answers include:

  • a computer, for my kids
  • a motorcycle
  • a pony

Yeah, there are the stupid answers as well, such as “my kids, they’re priceless”.  Really?  Let’s get with the program of superficiality here, please.

Was it a car?  If so, how were the payments handled — did they co-sign the contract with you, or pay for the car outright?

Was it a house?  Let’s hope you at least moved in together.

Was it some massive piece of jewelry?  If so, hopefully a KLOW-JOB was involved, because “every kiss begins with K”, according to that one commercial.

But maybe extreme expenditures aren’t really necessary.  According to DATING ONLINE‘s list of 50 Frugal Dating Tips, gifts are good — but they don’t have to be expensive.  Give a sentimental gift that will remind your date of something special.  A plastic doodad could mean just as much, if not more, than a fancy necklace.

And save you a little bit of money and bitterness in the end, especially if you ultimately end up breaking up with that person.
